The answer to yesterday's trivia question is Jordan. Crown Prince Abdullah, now King Abdullah II, was a fan and was given a non-speaking appearance in an episode of Voyager.
Today's question is:
What was the currency of Greece immediately prior to the adoption of the euro?
Update, 2/16/09: Unless someone has a better idea, I'm going to hold off posting the answers until I post the next day's question. That way, everyone has a chance to participate without being influenced by other answers.
Many correct answers on this question :-)
Greek currency was in drakmas.
My wife and I honeymooned there (years ago).
The drachma! I have a 10 drachma coin that I used as a golf marker once :) It's now in the large folder with all of my other "collection" coins.
Drachma, unless this is a trick question and they adopted the lira for a month or something.
Ok, now I know I posted it before. And NO I didn't cheat, though I had to think on it a while. I think it is a denarius, because that's what they called it in ancient Greece ... but I'm not for sure on that!
As I recall the unit of currency for Greece used to be the Drachma. I confess I have no idea what the exchange rate was, but I think it took quite a few Drachmas to equal a dollar. I will also admit that I was unaware that Greece had stopped using the Drachma and switched to the Euro. Now I'm going to go Google and see if I'm right.
The drachma. As in the old, but politically incorrect (snort) joke:
"What's a Grecian urn? Oh, about 70 drachma a week."
I know! I know!
Can I say, er, write it?
Seven letters. Begins with D.
So far there have been Star Wars questions and coin questions, how am I not surprised?
It was the Dracma one up.(I think tht's the right spelling). I didn't even have to look that
